Replace Local Links With Title
Mod Version: 1.00, by Jafo232 (Coder) Jafo232 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jan 2020 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.5.1 Rating: (3 votes - 4.67 average) Installs: 70
Released: 09 Nov 2005 Last Update: Never Downloads: 50
Not Supported  

Please note, this hack is NO LONGER SUPPORTED. I have built a new mod that accomplishes the same thing but the method is completely different. To avoid confusion, I just created a new mod. You can find the new mod here:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1322843










CHANGELOG:

1.01

Added support for threads with the newpost and lastpost attributes in the query string.

Made matches less greedy.

-----------------------------------

I wish I could come up with a better name for this plugin..

Basically what this does is if someone posts a link in a thread that links to a thread in your forum, it will replace the link text with the title of that thread.

For example:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=83252

Would automatically be displayed as:

Hacks should be released in ONE ZIP file please

This is for version 3.5.x and should work for future versions unless they move hooks around.

As far as support, I will reply to this thread when I can.

Installation is simple, go to your admin cp, click plugin system, click download/upload plugin and upload the attached plugin.

NOTE: The second xml file (vbulletin-plugins-anon.xml) is ONLY needed for the anonymizer hack. If you have that hack installed, then use the second file, otherwise, use the first. Only install the second file IF you use the anonymizer hack. It is either or, don't install both!

Also note if you have other plugins that alter links other than the anonymizer, such as mods that make your links look like html pages, or in anyway alters links entered into posts, then this will probably not work for you.

The only other thing you should do after that is CLICK INSTALL.

Not sure what that anonymiser plugin is, but make sure you enable this plugin, and that you are using LOCAL links. It will not link titles to other forums, just your own.

You should also note that it will not parse titles if someone links to a particular post in a thread, only if they link to the thread itself.

Thanks for this, will this replace links already posted before applying the plugin?

Yes it will. It does not modify any database data, it parses it after it is retrieved.

The plug in defaults to Active. The link I added was the title thread of another internal forum. See my example here

I think this is because of your anonymizer hack, because if you look at the link in that thread:

http://www.cpfools.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4281

The actual link is:

http://www.anonym.to/?http://www.cpfools.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4281

Which will mean nothing to the plugin. The plugin will search for the setting you have for Forum URL in your vbsettings and ignore all other URL's. The only way that MIGHT work, and I am not sure is if you change your Forum URL setting to:

http://www.anonym.to/?http://www.cpfools.com/forum

That is what I suggested in first post. May need to add a *Won't work with anonymizer plug in.
Good mod though.

I am not familiar with the anonymizer hack, but I modified the original plugin and attached it to the mod post up top. Try that one, it should work for you (vbulletin-plugins-anon.xml).

Yeah, I was tinkering with that hack because it is broken (see my post in that thread). It gave me the inspiration for writing this hack.

Sorry for a 3rd post but this plugin has quite a lot of bugs...
1. If you want another text displayed and not the title it doesn't appear, only the link does.
2. Sometimes it does not parse the URL

for these reasons I will disable the plugin but I will not click uninstall cause I hope these will be fixed and I want to be notified
